Travel, oddly enough, is often a quest for rootedness and connection.
The travelers who penned the outstanding stories that feature in this week’s edition of Tales From the Road all seem to be in search of a single moment when they feel at home in the world, in tune with the music of the universe.
For Adam Karlin that moment comes under a banyan tree at the most sacred temple in Burma.
For Peter Develett it comes on acid in Tokyo, gazing at the lucid moon.
For Bruce Northam it comes after days of deprivation in the Utah desert, and then again on a sidewalk in Scotland.
